Our Karen Sahara Dress pays homage to the Danish author Karen Blixen (Rungsted 1885 – 1962), who lived in Kenya for several years.

The short dress is inspired by the classic four-pocket Sahara jackets and is entirely made of linen. It comes with four front facing patch pockets, horn buttons for closure and strings on the sides. Pair it with our ikat Freya Maxi Scarf for an effortlessly chic ensemble.

The fabric is sourced directly from dead-stock fabric from factories in Northern Italy. The dress is designed and made at a family-size workshop. The entire process, from sourcing to ironing takes place in an area of 10 sq km in the Veneto region, in Italy.
